"I love it that Ivy League coaches are coming to our camp and Big Ten coaches are coming to our camp. South Florida is coming. We've got about 70 schools that are coming to our camp."
I like these "You are..." themed stories. What is Coach Hoke's approach towards the team this week? Here are some thoughts I had.
(1) You (the players) are defined at Michigan by what you do against Ohio State. BEAT OHIO.
(2) This is a chance to create a memory for yourselves (seniors) or for the seniors.
(3) This is our bowl game. (Obviously, any bowl oppoent will not be as good as Ohio State.)
(4) Light them up that they have underperformed and can salvage the season with a win here.
(5) Don't overstate the game's importance. Focus on the process of getting better each day.
(6) Other (explain)
So, in an effort to get back into some sort of shape (other than round), I have started exercising again recently. My wife even has me training for a half marathon in the spring (I can only comfortably do 4 - 5 miles right now). I borrowed the wife's iPod for a run yesterday and she toldme , "I already have a good running mix in the Playlist." Perfect (I thought). Unfortunately, I ended up skipping over half of the songs - way too much cheesey pop and too many slower tempo songs. I decided that I need my own playlist and started making a list off the top of my head this morning - a little more difficult than I thought.
So, I decided to tap into the knowledge of the MGoCommunity for some help. Toss out some ideas people. The only type of music that I am not really into is country (yes I even like pop despite what I said earlier - there's just a limit to how much Justin Timberlake should be on any single mix, and that limit is low for me). Pretty much everything else is on the table - from metal to classical to drum corps. The only thing you don't have to suggest is "Hail To the Victors" (I have a pretty nice extended live version of it from when the MMB visited my high school back in the day - circa 1996).
So pony up ladies and gentlemen, and let me know what gets you pumped up whether it be to work out, make a sale (ala Dwight Shrewt), or simply gets you amped for a game. I'll start compiling a list for myself in a couple days, so keep 'em coming.
Also, if you are going to embed a song or video, please at least include the name somewhere - I can't view video or hear audio (from the internet) on my machine at work.
Thanks in advance for the help!
After a big win we rejoice with muppets but before we can get to that much anticipated post-game serenade we'll need a pretty strong motivational video. As we've seen nobody gets the party started like puppets:
Bert & Ernie getting ummm, "crunk"?
